Why am I not seeing my nearest local mind?
Unfortunately, there are a few places in England and Wales that aren't covered by a local Mind service yet (we're working on it). And we don't operate in Scotland or Northern Ireland.
But don't give up - there may be other services near you. You can:
- Try the Hub of hope directory - they list mental health services all over the UK
- Visit the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) website, if you live in Scotland
- Visit Inspire Wellbeing, if you live in Northern Ireland
- Read our information pages on how to find therapy or counselling, and how to find peer support
- Call our Infoline on 0300 123 3393 to talk through your next steps
How is Mind Cymru governed?
In Wales, we set our own agenda and prioritise campaigns and projects that are important to people who live here.
We're governed by Pwyllgor, a committee of volunteers who help shape our direction and make sure we're on the right track.
